ch-ch-ch changes

Bowie knew it. I tell it to my daughters all the time: change is the only constant in life. The presence of change never changes. Learn to embrace change or wither. Especially on trails. But more so in life. Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes / Turn and face the strange / Ch-ch-changes / Don't want to be a richer man / Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes As the world turns and burns, the wistful almost pleading tone of Bowie’s voice seems like something I want to take onto the trail with me. In the first edition of Trail Run Mag (waaaay back in in the winter of 2011, 34 editions ago, when we were a from-the-kitchen-bench, free download magazine), I wrote that I was The Angry Trail Runner. A theatre director in Jenin, Palestine, had been assassinated, shot dead for encouraging…

baby steps

[OR HOW TRAIL RUNNING TAUGHT ME TO LOVE MY POSTPARTUM BODY] The first time I went for a run in my sports bra, without a shirt on, I was about two months postpartum and pushing my newborn(ish) daughter in her stroller. I was rocking that four to five-month pregnant-looking mum-tum that meant I didn't fit comfortably in any of my race t-shirts so, tired of putting a running tee on just to feel the seams threatening to burst, I just decided to quit the tee. I mean, it’s not like I could just quit the mum-tum anyway and those two things were clearly not agreeing with each other. Prior to having my daughter, I had a much flatter stomach but zero confidence to have it on display in public. Trips to the beach…

stockists

WE DON’T TRUST OUR TRAIL BIBLE WITH ANY OLD RUNNING SHOP STOCKIST. RATHER, OUR STOCKISTS ARE A SPECIAL BREED OF RETAILER WHO HAVE HAD TO MEET STRINGENT REQUIREMENTS TO BE ALLOWED TO SELL TRAIL RUN MAG IN THE FLESH: THEY HAVE TO UNRESERVEDLY, AND WITH EQUAL PARTS BOUNDLESS PASSION AND KNOWLEDGEABLE INSIGHT, BE UTTERLY MAD ABOUT THE TRAIL RUNNING LIFESTYLE.

now’s a good time to buy

THE NORTH FACE FLIGHT FUTURELIGHT REVIEWER: CHRIS ORD Welcome to the future. A tomorrow happening today where your running jacket really does keep you dry by doing the two functions any wet weather jacket needs to nail to actually stop the inner squelsh: water from the sky kept out, water (and other smelly stuff) from your body purged from within, lest your jacket become a sauna. Even been in a sauna? No-one stays dry in a sauna. So here we have what on the (north) face of it (pah-ching) is a disrupter product based on my favourite science (if I were ever to play favourites among my sciences): nano science. And we’re talking actual new patents and proprietary claims, ones that stack up could wipe the floor with the old Gore-Tex (not sure…

jumbo-holdsworth trail race

Now in its 26th running, the Jumbo-Holdsworth Trail Race used to alternate direction every year, and many a bar fight started over which was the ‘best’ direction to run. Utilise the beautifully shaded Donnelly’s Flat for a decent warm-up before braving a technical and brutal 1500m climb to the exposed ridge? Or leverage months of diligent hill training to slay opponents early on the more runnable Gentle Annie, before busting out a fast finish? Either way, Jumbo-Holdsworth delivers remarkable variety over a relatively short distance, but with sufficient grunt-factor to keep a (wo)man honest. The trail climbs out of beautiful native forest onto a tussocked ridgeline traverse with spectacular Tararua views. Be warned: this mountain range is a fickle mistress prone to rapid inclement weather changes – reasonable mountain and…
